The shiraz and viognier grapes were co-fermented in both large static potters and rotary fermenters. Warm temperatures at the onset of fermentation and an average of 3-5 days post ferment maceration have aided in extracting soft fleshy tannins and building palate structure, giving a stylishly aromatic wine that finishes with softness and drinkability. The grapes for this blend have been sourced from various vineyard regions within dryland South Australia.
The Y Series Shiraz Viognier showcases the excellent varietal characters of these two grape varieties, co fermented capturing their synergy. On the nose initial aromas of violets and sweet berry fruits are meshed with the subtle fragrance of apricot and musk. The palate is fresh with black currant and liquorice. Berry-rich mid-palate fruits with a soft even texture and fine tannin finish.
